Re: For all you metal benders

In January, on the German incarnation of Phenomenon, Uri Geller performed something very similar. Using his thumb, he pushed on the outer bowl of a spoon and caused it to dimple significantly inward. The force required was ostensibly great enough, that his thumbprint was even 'melted' or 'pressed' i...

Re: psi-deck (Bruce burnstien)

To augment Ford's excellent review, here are a couple direct answers to your questions. 1) is it easy? Mechanically speaking yes, but depending on your choice of presentation, will require varying levels of audience management skill. 2) Are the backs similar to the bycicle ryder pack. Very similar. ...

Re: Confuse about ClipBoards

Can you please list which clipboards you yourself feel are generally accepted as "the best"?
The Brown Hornet (and it off-shoots) by John Riggs. Wonderful boards. Depending on your needs, John's new Cicada is worthy serious consideration.

Although the generally accepted "best" clipboards are not even on your list, before a recommendation is made, can you provide some information on the type of routine you plan to use one in?

Re: Deceptive Stairs

Rayeden,

Take a serious look at Rand Woodbury's Illusionworks video Vol. 1 "Steps and Bases". Step by step instruction for a great set of steps (and a nice base). Be sure to pick up Vol. 3 "Tricks of the Trade", as an important informational compliment.

Re: TSUNAMI VS. KENT

Of course, with some handling considerations, one could simply use a Farmarx (or Lesley) Deck and ask whatever questions you would like.

It would make for a nice "magician killer" for those in the know, not to mention a great piece in the real world.

Re: PK Pencil Illusion or other Pencil illusion

Misled is indeed a wonderful effect, but one that requires a good deal of work to "master". A non-magician actor may not want to put in the time required to perform proficiently.

Seems to me, any number of mental effects that require paper and writing down information could fit your criteria. Billet work Drawing Dups.
